Thank You for Attending AADL/ACVIP User Day 2022

Stay tuned for our next event to join leading AADL/ACVIP users who are changing the world of software engineering in a free forum presenting the latest on Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL), Architecture-Centric Virtual Integration Process (ACVIP), and associated tools.

The Architecture Analysis and Design Language, or AADL, is an SAE International standard for describing both the software architecture and the execution platform architectures of performance-critical, embedded, real-time systems. AADL is being used for the engineering of safety-critical systems.
